Signature Sound Sculptures by Leon transform speakers into a work of art

Leon Speakers, American manufacturer of high-end custom audio products that mix art with audio and design with technology, announced today that they are the recipients of a 2018 BORN Award for their Lena Sound Sculpture. The company’s President and Founder Noah Kaplan accepted the award at a private ceremony in Beverly Hills, CA earlier this month.

Founded in 2010, the BORN Awards are an annual competition to honor innovative products that combine functionality and aesthetics. Previously only in Europe, this is the first year that BORN has expanded the competition to include the United States. Centered around a different theme each year, this year’s submissions were judged on their demonstration of the theme Peerless. “It alludes to the idea that there’s nothing else quite like it. A peerless design stands apart for all the right reasons. It’s easy to simply be different…but to truly deserve the term ’peerless’ takes imagination, intellect, wit, and more than a little wisdom,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer.

A panel of judges comprised of 15 industry leaders selected the winning products in six categories: Architecture, Technology, Home, Leisure, Sport, and Mobility. Leon’s Lena Sound Sculpture took home the award in the Home category.

“It is truly an honor to have received a BORN award, whose core mission of celebrating the intersection of functionality and aesthetics is something that we’ve always been committed to at Leon. We are ready to radically transform the way we bring sound and technology into the modern home and the sound sculpture represents a starting point to a new conversation about the future of audio,” said Leon’s Noah Kaplan.


Leon’s Lena Sound Sculpture is a multimedia sculptural piece that elegantly integrates art with audio. Using soundwaves as inspiration, curved hardwood panels with integrated LED lighting are interspersed between audio channels, bringing sound, light, and form together to create an entertainment experience unlike any other.
